Ed Sheeran releases music video filmed in Ukraine
UK singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has released his latest track 2step, along with an emotional music video.
The video for the song was filmed in Kyiv, Ukraine, just days before the deadly Russian invasion.
Before the song starts, a written message from Sheeran appears on the screen in black and white.
In it, the Grammy-winning singer explains he filmed the video in Kyiv before “the devastating acts of violence started.”
“It was my first time visiting the country and I felt so welcomed...” he said.
“Ukraine is a proud and resilient country and I’m grateful to have had the chance to film my video there.”
“I stand with Ukraine, and will be donating my record royalties from YouTube streams of the video to the DEC’s [The Disasters Emergency Committee] Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal,” the singer added.
The video shows Ed Sheeran walking through the quiet and peaceful streets of Kyiv, as he performs the song about the stress and struggles of his personal life.
The track 2step is the latest from Sheeran’s album “=” (pronounced “equals”), which he released in 2021.
Since the music video has been released, it has amassed over 9.5 million views.
